Subject: Franklin's Dew
These Greeks were the primal Brent era shows along with 9/2/80.
2 die 4 Jerry second set

Subject: This is my master.
I put this into "digital circulation" Nov. 23 05 at dimeadozen.org
This is straight from the cassettes with the Dolby B decoded and no alteration. I don't know why Walsh recommends "tweaking" the EQ. I disagree, the sound is loud and clear and balanced, Jerry is especially prominent.
I was situated perfectly FOB, for this and the next two nights.
Unlike many other tapers that night I was running just one deck,
not a chain of them. This was the era of "NO TAPING", and stealth was imperative.
My 9-12 sounds just like this but hasn't ever been circulated for a number of unfortunate reasons. Maybe soon.

I went to every single Greek and Frost show. I have always thought this first run was exceptional

Subject: This is the source...with a little tweaking of the EQ.
The Jim Wise is definitely the source to get for the next night, but for this show the nak300.unknown source is the way to go. It has much more lowend, which is definitely lacking in the Wise source, and no real audible hiss. The crowd is there but not intrusive in any way.

As far as the show, Mickey's BDay, it gets outshined by the next night in EVERY way. There are some highlights, but overall, it seems like a warmup.

I enjoyed the Cumberland and the Candyman, but even in those Jer just isn't as on as the next night...where everything just bursts at the seams with energy and inventiveness. The Second set is markedly better, as far as Jer and the boys go, with a HUGE Stranger->Franklin's to open. Jerry gets out there and the group improv is stunning in the Franklin's outro. The He's Gone is solid with a great ending...Jer gets the crowd AMPED with the 'Nothing's gonna bring him back' line...by himself. Nice bluesy outro into Truckin'. This winds it's way through a barrage of 'Other One' hints by the whole band. I also thought for a brief moment, that there was going to be a "Nobod's Fault Jam', but they digress to the Rythm Devils.

The Space, is ok, Mickey stays out the whole time basically, yet there are no hints at the Other One at all. Bobby is the first to bring it up gingerly while Jer still dances up and down the neck of his guitar, he finally allows Weir to start it proper and the rest of the band revs up. Jer and Brent hook up on col ascending lines, it would have been cool to hear that play out a bit more. Bobby jangles in the song, without really any help from Phil.The jam just seems to keep losing steam

I give it a 3.5, because of the quality of the recording, and it is a mediocre 1st set followed by a slightly above avg 2nd set. Had I re-listened to this first, before the 12th, I might have been a little easier on this show...but it just lacks so much compared to the next night.

The Overall Highlights are Stranger->Franklin's and the end of He's Gone. Dew is always fun to hear, and it finished a slightly above avg 2nd set, which saved the show from being a stright 3...sound is above avg for an aud.
